As a person ages, they often lose the mental capacity to make wise, informed
decisions about their finances or their day-to-day responsibilities. Though
adults are generally assumed to be capable of managing their own affairs,
some adults prove unable to do so. In these situations, it may be necessary
to establish a conservatorship.

laws governing conservatorships and can help you understand whether this

What Is a Conservatorship?
A conservatorship is a legal arrangement that gives one person the responsibility
of caring for an adult who can no longer care for themselves. A conservator
has the right to make decisions about the impaired conservatee’s
finances and personal care.
Conservatorships must be approved by a judge who deems the adult impaired
and the arrangement necessary. A conservatorship is often necessary when
a mentally incapacitated or elderly person has not made prior arrangements
for their care, such as through a power of attorney.
Establish a Conservatorship to Protect Your Elderly Loved One
OC Elder Law, we recognize that people seek conservatorships for many reasons. Whether
your adult child is mentally incapacitated or your parent is exhibiting
signs of dementia, a conservatorship can help you protect your loved one’s
quality of life.
However, many of our conservatorship cases involve establishing conservatorships
to successfully discharge adults from the hospital.
What is Conservatorship for the Elderly?
In many cases, family members seek conservatorships for their elderly parents
or grandparents who cannot make medical or discharge decisions on their
own. Too often, we see elderly patients stuck in hospitals they cannot
sign themselves out of.
By establishing a conservatorship, an appointed conservator will have the
power to sign the elderly patient out of the hospital and bring them home
or to the proper care facility.
